Tribute to Ace Jackalope

Many things in this life
Are not what they appear
Yeah I look like a hare
But if you stop and you stare
I’m related to a deer

– Supersuckers “Creepy Jackalope Eye”

So what does that have to do with a cicada, well, there’s a person on YouTube named acejackalope that has been posting dozens of videos of cicadas. Lots of them feature good shots of the cicada, the species name and their song (which is important, since a lot of cicadas look the same, so you need to hear their song to identify them). All of them are great quality too.

Here’s some samples:

    Cool; I’m mentioned in Cicada Mania! I sometimes pop over here in the summer to look around like a kid reading the Sears Wish Book.
